outages. i saw pictures from the walmart with the bread aisle with nothing on the shelves. people are taking it seriously. so again, the area of greatest concerns is the darker purple shading from outside louisville to paducah and little rock, memphis. this starts later on today, more or less this evening. then all day tomorrow. the northern edge of this will get some snow, too. so oklahoma city will get a little snow, st. louis, indianapolis and start as sleet and heavy crunchy snow on top. even dallas has winter storm warning. the temperatures, billing, montana, a high temperature today of zero. goose egg. >> it was warm walking in today. >> east coast is warm. rain coming. we're just lucking out. >> coming up, "morning joe." president obama grig income and equality into the spotlight. but is there a realistic legislation that can actually make a difference? when we come back here, we huddle around the cooler. why a $50 million lottery winner may be the luckiest winner of all time. we'll be right back.
